3. Newtown Creek
Cassie’s best friend, Annie (played by Zosia Mamet) is a lawyer and her clients seem to be involved in some shady stuff. In an early scene she appears in, she’s standing on the banks of Newtown Creek, an industrial zone on the border of Brooklyn and Queens, and a client comes out with bloody hands. Cassie later returns here in search of a shell company she’s trying to locate.
Newtown Creek is an EPA Superfund site, meaning it’s one of the most polluted bodies of water in America, but it also has some great architectural highlights, including an award-winning wastewater treatment plant (yes, that’s a thing) and most relevantly, it’s the home of Broadway States, one of the large sound stage companies in New York City. That’s why you see a lot of film and television productions shooting around Newtown Creek. Besides The Flight Attendant, Newtown Creek and Broadway Stages has appeared in The Undoing, Billions, The Punisher, Mr. Robot, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Daredevil and more.
